• Erling Haaland has been linked to a move to Chelsea
  • A recent tweet suggests that he's not going anywhere
  • Dortmund is looking for a winger to replace Jadon Sancho

Norwegian superstar Erling Haaland has been linked to a move to the English Premier League with Chelsea.

Early in the transfer window, Chelsea and Haaland were reported to have agreed to personal terms, with a transfer bid being the only obstacle then.

But now, it seems like Haaland will be staying with Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga.

It was Haaland’s £68 million ($95.9 million) release clause that was seen as most enticing to the interested clubs as they were looking to pry him away from Dortmund this summer.

The problem for interested parties was that of Manchester United’s signing of Jadon Sancho this summer.

Dortmund has already lost a key striker for the team, and they are not planning on losing another.

The club was reportedly asking interested parties for a massive transfer fee of £150 million ($211.7 million) for Haaland, and prior to Sancho’s departure, it looked like it was happening.

However, a tweet from Haaland himself indicates that he is not going anywhere.

The young striker had confirmed that he has started training with Dortmund as they prepare for a run back to the top of the Bundesliga table, after finishing 13 points behind league-winners Bayern Munich.

The England-born Haaland’s contract is active until the 2024 summer transfer window, but his release clause set for 2022 will allow other interested clubs to potentially steal him away from Dortmund at a much lesser price.

New Dortmund boss Marco Rose is looking to take the club back to the top of the table as Bayern Munich is undergoing their own internal transitions and finally break through Bayern Munich’s hold on the Bundesliga title.

For Dortmund, their next order of business is to sign a winger that could replace the production that Sancho once gave them and they have their eyes set on PSV Eindhoven’s 19-year-old Noni Madueke.

Head of first-team football Sebastian Kehl reveals their plans for the rest of the transfer window.

“We definitely want to do something [in the transfer market]. We want to remain ambitious – but under what circumstances? We are carefully evaluating how things are developing.”

“We will not do any crazy things,” he said adamantly.
